My 4 year old has been acting out a lot lately. There have been a lot of changes here lately and more to come. I'm expecting a baby in about 8 weeks and I know she senses the changes with that and I changed my hours at work which has changed her hours at "school" (daycare).
It seems like a few weeks ago out of nowhere she just decided she doesn't want to listen to ANYONE anymore. When myself, her father, her teachers, etc ask her to do something she will straight up IGNORE us and if we attempt to stop her from doing something or tell her "no," she will immediately start screaming her head off and will throw a huge fit.
Today we went to dinner after work/school and when we went to pay for our food at the front she noticed that they had candy and asked if she could have some. She just celebrated her birthday a few days ago and has had an abundance of candy/sugar and I don't usually allow that so I told her "not tonight honey, maybe you can have a treat tomorrow." She simply pouted and said "ahhh man" and I thought that was the end of that. Well, we get out to the parking lot and out of nowhere she is screaming "RING POP RING POP RING POP" and refuses to move. I had to practically drag her to the car as she screamed. She screamed for forty minutes over candy.
Any tips/tricks for disciplining a child her age? I don't know what to do...
